"We are told that the full details should come out on Friday, October 20th or thereabouts"

"We’re also told the announcement in October may include an announcement of tour dates for the Experience and Innocence tour, expected to start in late March 2018."

... and more

That's great news. I am behind on a couple of JT things but to hear a video is being produced is great.

Makes sense. Now that they have around 10 days off they can finish off those polishing touches on the album and get it out to the presses.  It's a good thing they have so much pull that they can jump to the head of the line.

They'll need to announce the announcement first. It's probably that.

Isn't Oct 20 right before, on, or right after the tour ends? It's not like they'd still have a month left.

Why would they announce a tour before the album announcement/news? They'll do the album then tour announcement stuff in November/ December. Just like last time for IE

I'm pretty sure they will announce the album officially late October and tour announcement December.

I bet, but that is only part of the reason.
My main reason for thinking this could be true is that Oct 200 is around when TJT 30 ends.

Tomorrow's the 20th!!!
What will the announcement be?
Announcing the SOE will be released December 1st?
Dropping the single "GOOYOW?
Original article says that they will also announce tour dates, but I can't see that happening til after December 1st.

Agreed on the tour dates. I don't see them announcing a tour tomorrow while they are still (even tho it's ending) different tour. I think there's going to be breathing room before tour dates are announced.

I'm with you on either the single release, album announcement, maybe pre-order, or the announcement of a Record Store Day release.

U2 are announcing @U2's forums will officially close down, and reveal their forum alter egos.

An Tha is Bono.
riffraff is Adam.
The mod who decided to close @U2 is Larry.
And I'm really The Edge's cat.

The Edge himself doesn't have time for the forums, he's always tinkering with the new album.

Normally when you pre order , you’re given the release date for the rest of the album.

An announcement today seems unlikely at this point.  I feel like there would have been something would have been a teaser come from U2.com or something.
Title: Re: Announcements coming October 20th?
Post by: zoo world order on October 20, 2017, 09:38:16 AM
assuming a Dec1st release date an announcement should come soon. However, U2 have been know to delay releases historically so it could be pushed further into December so the announcement could be several weeks away yet.

They always drop hints, send emails to create a buzz before announcing something. I never bought into this rumour. There were suggestions an announcement was likely at the end of October. That seems more likely.. maybe next Friday but not much longer to wait because they need to keep the momentum up.

Given the props for the new video (for 'Get Out of Your Own Way'), it's pretty obvious that the new video (and likely the album info) will be released on The Day of the Dead (The Mexican Holiday (Día del Los Muertos), which this year happens to begin on October 31st. Celebrations continue on until November 2nd. But I would be shocked if it wasn't released on the 31st. It's also a great nod to Mexico and all the people who lost their lives during the earthquakes this year, as this holiday is about celebrating the dead and the lives they had. Good on U2 👍

Larry's Halloween costume: a t-shirt with the slogan, "It's my birthday and all I got was a song I've already heard a million times."

I believe they will make an official announcement on Tues Oct 31st and drop their new Single "Get Out of Your Own Way." The reason why is because it's not only Day of Dead holiday in Mexico, but it's Halloween here in the U.S. Plus, it's a Tuesday which is when the music industry releases new albums and singles. I'm usually right about these kind of things  :)

The US has been releasing new albums on Friday’s for awhile now.
